I want, I want, I want

Yes, I want her too -
And yet I would not want what she'd become
if caged against her will,
Her freedom is a part of her.

You cannot cage a lion and then expect to find the graceful beast
that once ruled o'er the veldt,
Nor clip the feathered pinions and then expect
the falcon's stoop to end in other than
a small sad bloodied heap.

She is not yours or mine
to tote around for pleasure or for gain,
She is simply one of us, another searcher in life's dream.
And ‘tis not for any to impede another's quest
but rather kindly help around the maze,
So that in some future time when our ways part
we can proudly say (each to the other) that for a space
"I gifted you my heart".

I am smiling very widely here on this one. What wonderful sentiments. Thanks for sharing this

MP, WOW I'm glad I went in search of your poetry, this one is filled with so much wisdom. I LOVED IT !  

Yes, I am here, but I am dead, not alive,
my body goes on, my spirit has died,
and I though alive, feel dead inside.
